· In Q1 FY18, Nektan continued to deliver strong growth compared to Q1 FY17, with NGR in the quarter increasing by 88.4%.

· A significant increase in deposits, compared to Q4 FY17 and set against a reduction in FTDs, shows that the Company is attracting a higher quality of player. A combination of seasonality and a higher pay-out ratio resulted in a modest decrease in NGR compared to Q4 FY17.

· The Company launched 5 new sites and 1 new partner in Q1 FY18 and is currently running a total of 83 brands with plans to launch 10 new sites with 4 new partners during the current quarter to 31 December 2017. The benefits of this expansion are already evident during the early part of Q2 FY18.

· In Q1 FY18, Nektan launched 42 new games with 4 games vendors taking the Group's total mobile games portfolio to over 350.

· The Company continues to penetrate further into the Swedish market and is launching a new localised casino proposition during Q2 FY18.

B2B

· The Company expects to announce its first platform deal in relation to its B2B business in the next month. The core Nektan Evolve technology will be utilised to deliver a mobile casino games platform in up to 23 countries with the business partner responsible for B2B localised licensing. The solution is expected to be live before the end of the calendar year. Nektan sees this as a very important development and part of its strategy to diversify into newer geographic markets outside Europe.

On-Premise Gaming (North America)

· Interest in Rapid Games' 'On-Premise' mobile gaming solution continues to grow and the product is currently going through internal review and approval processes in several US tier 1 tribal casinos.

· Respin continues to expand its Rapid Games product offering with recent approvals for a number of new games in both its class II and class III portfolios as well as being one of the only operators to receive platform certifications for GLI 16, 26, 21 and 11 regulations allowing it to be one of the first companies to offer mobile casino in the US.

· The Company has entered into multiple strategic content partnerships to further enhance its games portfolio and is in the process of adding multiple 'smart table' solutions to its approved client library.

Gary Shaw, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Nektan, said:

'Our core European business continued to progress in Q1 FY18 as expected. The proposed launch of new commercial partners during the current quarter will see that growth continuing. Our strategy to leverage our core technology asset Evolve into further geographically diversified markets through platform licensing deals will see the business develop into one of the first gaming technology businesses with its platform live across three major continents. I am particularly pleased with the progress being made in the US where our investment positions Nektan as one of the first movers in mobile casino gaming.'
